Plastered

[Picture of mis-spelled sign]IN A TAXI IN GLASGOW CITY CENTRE, I COULD HARDLY BELIEVE MY EYES WHEN I SAW THIS SIGN.

It says:

PROFESIONAL PLASTERES

*suspended cielings     * artex removal
*coving            *dry lining
*skimming     *FREE ESTIMATES!

It is a LARGE sign, yet they did not bother to spell check.  They cannot spell “ceilings”, and they have a disregard for capitalisation, but the biggest crime is also ironic – they cannot spell “Professional”. How unprofessional of them!

Things are getting worse when posters like this can cause erratic driving in city centre streets during rush hour.

Weird Racism?

[Picture of Ching Kee food]I COULDN’T BRING MYSELF TO BUY THIS PRODUCT!

It is Ching Kee Phoenix Rolls. Imagine the looks you would get if someone overheard you on the telephone asking your spouse to buy some Ching Kee rolls from the shops!

Deposit on a Car

[Picture of car covered in bird poo]WHAT A SHAME I THOUGHT WHEN I SAW THIS CAR IN SHAWLANDS THIS MORNING.

It is completely covered in bird droppings. It seems to have been parked under the railway bridge for a while by the looks of it.

I climbed the stairs to the railway station, and took a picture from up there. Click on the pictures to enlarge the image

I cannot image how the owner will feel when they arrive back to fetch their vehicle!

Beating The Meat Thieves

[photo of security tagged meat in supermarket]I WAS STRUCK BY THE ARRIVAL OF SECURITY TAGGING IN THE SUPERMARKET – FOR RAW MEAT.

Chops, minced beef, steaks, you name it, it was security tagged. Presumably this is to foil shoplifters, which begs the question – how out-of-hand was this problem to go to the extra trouble of a new IT system?

[security tagged meat in supermarket]Did all that many people really steal freezing cold raw meat? Did they hide them down their trousers or up their jumpers? I shiver at the very thought! Imagine the irony of being caught stealing some tagged mince, and being tagged as a criminal!

Things are getting worse when this sort of thing has to happen. Whatever’s next – a pin number and password to get a pie?
